Add a PVP Server
This has long been a requested addition to our cluster. I feel that it’s something we can and should explore, with the following caveats, in no particular order.
1. No connected to the PVE servers/cluster. Nothing can be transferred to or from the PVP server, period. Keeps everyone on an even playing field that way.
2. Offline Raid Protection enabled.
3. Slightly boosted rates. Not as generous as the ones on the main Domi cluster, but higher than official. Something like 5x across the board.
4. “ARKpocalypse” server settings, where the map/server wipes ever x IRL days. Prevents an alpha tribe from being on top forever.
5. Gamma disabled.
6. Alliances disabled.
7. Admins won’t play PVP, so that there is zero chance of any cheating going on. As such, there will be a minimal admin presence, with admins only coming on to enforce a few rules, such as somebody being racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic in chat for example.
8. Minimal rules. The majority of the rules from the PVE cluster won’t apply, such as limits on how many bases you can have and how big they are. Rules can be made and enforce by tribes if they can enforce them. Might makes right.
9. Different game modes and settings that change from instance to instance. After a wipe and reset, some of the rules might change. For example, we might disable taming of dinos for a run, or enable small tribes, or disable Tek Engrams. Things we can do that the community votes on that add extra challenge to the PVP.
I think if we add a PVP server with these terms and rules, it could/would be an asset to Domination. Please vote in favor of this if you agree. Thank you.
